In 2016, a media firestorm erupted when the Tribeca Film Festival abruptly censored its documentary selection, VAXXED: FROM COVER-UP TO CATASTROPHE, amid pressure from pro-pharmaceutical interests. The film's subject, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control, had done the unthinkable, as far as Big Pharma was concerned: He had admitted that the results of a pivotal vaccine safety study conducted by the CDC were fraudulent. That revelation had catapulted VAXXED from obscurity to notoriety—as well as made it a huge target of censorship. In no time, the film became a worldwide trending topic and sold out in every theater around the U.S.—and eventually in other countries—where it opened.
Stunned by the enormous number of parents lining up outside the theaters with vaccine-injury stories to share, VAXXED producer Polly Tommey began to live-stream their voices. Each story reached millions of watchers worldwide. A beleaguered community that had once been silenced was finally empowered to rise up.
One outcome of VAXXED: FROM COVER-UP TO CATASTROPHE and the live-streamed injury accounts that trailed in its wake was a second film, produced in 2019 and titled VAXXED II: THE PEOPLE'S TRUTH. This follow-up documentary covers scenes from the more than 50,000 miles that Polly and the VAXXED team traveled in the U.S. and around the world. The thousands of interviews they conducted with parents and doctors who have nothing to gain and everything to lose have exposed the alarming extent of the vaccine injury epidemic.
We will have accomplished our mission when these two films' messages reach every single parent and guardian of young children on this planet and cause them to ask themselves: "Are vaccines really as safe and effective as we've been told?"
